Nice looking ute mate glad to see extra cabs coming out what are plans for it
Mate, there's so many things that I want to do to it. But I'm not sure that my income will allow :( , I guess I'll have to save for a bit. Here they are in no specific order.

4" Stainless steel snorkel
Rock sliders
Turbo kit (Probably MTQ)
UHF + Antenna
4-6" Lift, still unsure of which to get
New rubber.
Diff protection
Bash plate/undercarriage protection
Winch Bar
Winch
New grill
New Spotties
Roof rack

And thats about it. I might even consider some ARB lockers one day...:D

Cheers
OB

Wow throwback much? Posted this when I was 15, it was my old mans and he ended up selling it !! If I had been keen enough he probably would have kept it . I think it’s still getting around though.
In the mean time I have kept myself busy with... 1) 1988 SWB tb42 which I swapped for a $900 VX commodore .. the shorty Had a huge amount of issues so swapped that for a LWB 1997 RD28, bloke reckons he had just done the top end but he needed auto car for his missus . Rad hose popped off on way home - cracked head . So RB25 swapped the RD, was fun for a while till I damaged the knock sensor off road and threw a leg .
I was sick and tired of all the engine troubles I’d experienced and stumbled upon a td42 gq but the body was absolutely rooted . Bought it and brought it home on a car trailer and took the drive train out including swapping the diff centres , while the engine was out changed out various hoses / gaskets / water pump but the main upgrade was addition of a low mount turbo manifold and ht18!

thanks for reading, will post some pics when I’m back from overseas. I am currently in PNG and there are plenty of TD patrols, it’s great!
